Actor Paul Reubens, better known as Pee Wee Herman from Pee Wee’s Playhouse among other Pee Wee movies, has returned to the spot light once again.

It has taken Reubens around twenty years to get himself back to a semi popular role in entertainment. After exposing himself in an adult movie theater in 1991, Americans lost almost all their respect for the goofy kid show star.

Between then and now, he has wandered from movie to movie, taking small roles here and there. Reubens has appeared in movies like Blow, Mystery Men, and even Roald Dahl’s book-gone-movie Matilda.

His old show, Pee Wee’s Playhouse, will now be turned into a newer, more updated stage show. The new show is a recapturing of Pee Wee’s original performances with the Los Angeles comedy troupe, The Groundlings. It will run up until February 7, 2010 at Club Nokia.

According to the Associated Press, Reubens is very happy with his comeback. “It’s been interesting coming back into the spotlight … but it’s been feeling very exciting. I’m totally excited. I don’t even know what to say, heh heh heh,” he said.

Here’s a video of Reubens’ thoughts about his comeback. Enjoy the craziness…

I know many people and critics alike still think he’s funny, and I’d have to agree, but let’s see if he can keep it in his pants this time around.

Remember Tucker Max, author of I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell? His book, releasing a few months ago, was a major hit among young college students. It detailed the degrading sexual endeavours of a sarcastic, arrogant twenty-something-year-old with no sensitivity or tact. It was even so controversial and ridiculous that it was followed by a movie, which did fairly well in the box office.

Well, Tucker Max, meet your match: Ms. Chelsea Handler.

Handler is certainly the female equivalent to Max. I just finished reading her book My Horizontal Life: A Collection of One-Night Stands. I laughed so hard I nearly fell off my seat. Handler has sure had her fair share of hilarious sexual encounters. All I can hope (for her sake) is…wow, I hope she doesn’t have an std.

Back to a more positive note, here’s a quick look at some of the stories you will find in her book…sex with a midget. Sex with a Las Vegas stripper. Attempts at having sex with a male gynecologist, only to find out he’s gay. Stories about small penises. Stories about lying to get someone in bed. Stories about waking up in someone else’s apartment and remembering you crapped your pants the night before. I think you get the idea.

This book is a quick read. It’s doesn’t demand much from the reader, but sometimes we all need books like that. Either way, you won’t be disappointed in Handler’s work if you’re a twenty something, in college, and have a sense of humor. To anyone who doesn’t fit in that category — make sure you prepare yourself for crude funnies.

Chelsea Handler is a comedian who has had numerous television appearances. She had her own show, has done comedy routines on Comedy Central, and has also done interviews on late night tv talk shows. She has also written a second book called Are You There Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea. That book also made me laugh so hard I wanted to pee.
